On Thursday I went up to see Owain’s Butchers up in Aberaeron.
I have mentioned them before but they are a really great award winning butcher so worth mentioning again especially as they have just celebrated their 5th Anniversay!!
However it was on the subject of Christmas presents I went to see Owain. I know you do not immediately think of a Butcher when it comes to Christmas presents but Owain does gift vouchers. Again a Butchers does not immediately spring to mind but how many of you have elderly parents and how easy is it to buy for them? I know my in-laws tell me, no more books, no more clothes, no more plants – they have enough? So what do we buy? Well why not consider an Owain’s Butchers Gift Voucher?
Owain has really thought this through. His Vouchers are from £10 upwards but say you bought a voucher for £30 or indeed £50 your elderly relative might not have the freezer space to use the Voucher all at once. Well – they can use their Voucher for smaller purchases such as a pound of mince and it is just deducted off the voucher leaving the balance. So the voucher could be used over a number of weeks. What a brilliant idea and a great present.
Owain also does hampers – anything from £10 upwards. As he now has a liquor licence for the weekends the hampers can include Penlon Beer which Owain now stocks and a selection of good quality wine and Champagne, together with condiments such as products from the Welsh Mustard Company.
The Welsh Red Mustard is a particular favourite of mine. Owain bought this company together with Tom Williams in December 2008 and have already added two new products, Welsh Horseradish Sauce and Welsh Apple Sauce. To contact Owain call 01545 509044
